part time fire fighters.

october first marked the beginning of a big shift in how your ad lib wx quick here's a look at all the counties a part of the red flag warning... again the winds are strong, the humidity low and there are lots of dry grasses and crops to use as fuel... burning is not recommended... current wind gusts are greater than 30 mph across the state... temperatures are already warm in the 70s and they will keep going up. highs will reach 80 degrees in des moines late this afternoon. tonight will be dry and breezy and temperatures will stay mild overnight. october first marked the beginning of a big shift in how your debit and credit cards are protected. but many merchants still aren't ready... and are worried it could interfere with holiday sales. erika gonazalez explains.
12:07 pm
instead of swiping... the new chip cards are designed to be "dipped" into the payment terminal using a unique one- time encryption code. you'll still find the traditional magnetic strip on the new cards... and consumers may be asked to continue to swipe and sign... "the insert... i'm having just still swiping" that's because the chip enabled terminals you're supposed to "dip" not be up and running. here at frager's hardware... the chip readers are installed.... but they don't work. "it's just not ready... our software company... it's just a big nut to crack for them and there's a lot to do and they're just not there yet" frager's is not alone. merchants all over the u-s missed the october first deadline... and likely won't have the technology working until next year. "the interesting thing is a lot of merchants have the hardware necessary to support chip cards" alex johnson is with a research group that advises the banking and payment industry. it found the u-s is not where it should be with e-m-v technology.
12:08 pm
johnson and his team project nearly half of merchant payment terminals in the u-s will have the necessary equipment installed by the end of this year. but only 19-percent of them will actually be turned on and working. "from a software perspective there's a lot of steps that need to be done to load the software onto the device. there's a lot of certification testing that needs to be done and that makes it extremely challenging to get it turned on" johnson says many retailers will delay the switch to e-m-v technology until after the holidays for fear it could interfere with the peak shopping season. "the industry as a whole has known the chip cards were coming" and not being ready could cost merchants... that's because there's a shift in liability. if merchants don't have working chip technology and the consumer has the new chip card... the merchant is liable for any fraud that takes place at the register. most americans say they're concerned about identity theft. that's according to a new bankrate dot com report released today. it says 8 in 10 americans are scared of having their identities stolen. only 1 in 5 said they
12:09 pm
weren't worried at all. the report also said 46 percent of americans have either been a victim or know some who was. that's up 12 percent from 2008. with the first democratic presidential debate in the books, a new c-n-n/o-r-c poll shows hillary clinton performed strong enough to stay on top. the poll released this morning shows the former secretary of state maintaining her lead with 45 percent. vermont senator bernie sanders is behind her...with 29 percent of voters saying he has their support. and even though he has yet to announce a presidential run and didn't take part in the debate last week, vice president biden rounds out the top three with 18 percent. all other candidates had one percent or less. and sanders is one of a hand full of presidential hopefuls in iowa this week. he is speaking with voters now at william penn in oskaloosa. republican christie christie goes to newton wednesday. republican ted cruz is in

"try to create something that will help him sleep better

"after a couple weeks of tracking the soldier we can find the exact symptoms the exact symptoms of the onset of the panic attack and try to use the watch or use the android phone to disrupt that or take them out of the deep sleep but keep them asleep." the mybivy app earned tyler and his team top prize - best ptsd mobile app for clinicians. "i am very proud of him, yeah." it has yet to go through clinical trials. but tyler wants it on every veteran's wrist.

after the break david geiger talks to a farmer about the importance of answering questions and giving tours of iowa farms.. on the
12:39 pm
good afternoon.. this is the agribusiness report.. i'm david geiger. the world food prize wrapped up last week.. but before everyone packed up.. a group of international visitors jumped on a bus and headed out to an iowa farm.. put together by the iowa soybean association.. to see what farming here is like.. the pella farmer they visited says there's a lot of media that talks about farming... but it's important to see what it's like.. first hand. "to have them here and to have them see what u.s. agriculture really is and to hear it from a farmer, they're very interested they as a lot of good questions. it's just a very good thing they can go back home and be ambassadors for us in their country and if they're talking to someone and they hear something they can say, 'no, i was on an iowa farm and this is what the iowa farmer told me.'" bogaards says he's been on several international trips and it's interesting to see how farmers do things in different parts of the world.. he says some of the groups main questions were how he was using corn
12:40 pm
and soybeans.. and thoughts on g-m-o crops like how they're used and american perceptions. i also took the opportunity to ask bogaards about how his harvest has gone.. he says there was more moisture than was needed.. but it was good moisture.. a really temperate season has led to good corn and bean yields.. but there are two main problems in his fields this year. "the corn's too dry, it's testing about 13 percent we'd like it to have a little more moisture in it and then, probably the only thing we had this year was a lot of disease pressure and i think that did hurt some of the yield potential that we did have, but the plant health right now, the plants we're really trying to combine pretty quickly because the plant health is not pretty good and some of the winds we've been having has been blowing down some of the corn." he adds every year has it's obstacles. the grain markets are a bit lower.. and the cattle market seems to be gaining a lot of the ground it lost.. "corn is coming under pressure here with the active midwest harvest, very aggressive pace. i think there's a fear without a lot of field loss out
12:41 pm
here that we could see the yields grow.." "in the november report a half to a bushel on corn. so it's that combination along with improved world weather that's keeping us under pressure. we are seeing a little bit of a pickup in movement from producers that have big yields selling the excess. but also if the producer's really reluctant to store a big percentage off farm so we could see a little pick up on excess production as we hit the end of harvest." "the cattle in the last 5.5 weeks what we've really had is a break of about $25 a hundredweight near an all time record, we stopped and now we've had a historical rally back up, never had a rally this sharply up in this short amount of time and looking for things to more work sideways from here forward." "the hog market really is just a cap by increase supplies starting to grow a little bit the weights continue to pick up a little bit and the export demand has softened particularly from china so it's really the domestic demand that has to hold the market together." the colfax sheep and goat
